Dr. Blumenthal's training and experience make him especially resourceful. After a medical residency he entered successive fellowships in clinical pharmacology and pharmacokinetics while teaching as an instructor of medicine at Tulane and SUNY at Buffalo. For seven years, he worked as a research physician at Hoffmann-LaRoche's Clinical Pharmacology Unit at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. He was the first to measure plasma concentrations of nitroglycerin in man and also the first to demonstrate saccharin in the cord blood of newborn babies. During his years in research Dr. Blumenthal underwent the mandated medical screening programs. The 'repetitive exposure' to occupational medicine raised his interest in this discipline and resulted in a career change in 1984.
In the eighties, industry favored in-house corporate health programs. Dr. Blumenthal served as Medical Director of ITT's Communication Services Group, and later American Cyanamid's Shulton 'Old Spice' Group. During both assignments he built comprehensive medical programs at corporate headquarters in New Jersey as well as at out of state plants. He conducted voluntary annual examinations and headed a full spectrum of wellness programs, including employee assistance (EAP). He took care of injured employees, designed special survey programs assuring OSHA compliance, took part in corporate safety programs and designed emergency plans. Both assignments with ITT and Cyanamid ended due to corporate buyouts.
The nineties saw industry outsourcing its corporate health programs. Dr. Blumenthal helped building a regional chain of clinics, which later became part of Concentra®. He started up the Elizabeth facility and served as its first Clinic Medical Director. His clinical experience as an emergency physician came in handy. Since 1992, Dr. Blumenthal has conducted over 30,000 independent medical examinations. He has worked as an independent consultant and has developed strong professional ties with local consulting physicians. This helps in his present role as New Jersey Regional Medical Director of IMX Medical Management Services, Inc.
Dr. Blumenthal has become quite familiar with industry in the tri-state area. He has advised New Jersey based multinational corporations since 1977. His consulting assignments, at home and abroad, have included the State of New Jersey, PSE&G, Glaxo, Pfizer, Toshiba America, Cyanamid Canada and the Virgin Island Telephone Company. Dr. Blumenthal and his wife Marianne have raised three children in Maplewood, N.J.

Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.
(Wernher Von Braun)
True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.
The National Health service and the Welfare State have come to be used as interchangeable terms, and in the mouths of some people as terms of reproach. Why this is so it is not difficult to understand, if you view everything from the angle of a strictly individualistic competitive society. A free health service is pure Socialism and as such it is opposed to the hedonism of capitalist society.

A really well-bred man never submits to the waiter’s tyranny, and among
